Patients requiring prompt medical attention will receive treatment until the condition improves and/or transfer to a local civilian facility is arranged. Patients with non-emergent conditions may be referred back to their Pediatric Provider or specialist for further management.

What is PCMH?
PCMH is an active approach to establish a "Medical Home" for everyone - this means improved continuity of care! Your healthcare needs are coordinated by your pediatric provider who is leading a team of medical professionals providing continuous comprehensive and personalized prevention based health care.


WHY PCMH?
The key to PCMH and continuity of care is you should not have to worry about seeing a different provider each time you visit the clinic. Every effort will be made to ensure your child is cared for by the same pediatric health care team (technician, nurse, & provider) every time your child visits the clinic. Improved continuity means better medical management. If you are dissatisfied with your Primary Care Manager (PCM), please feel free to speak with a 51 MDG Tri-Care representative to discuss your options. We strive to meet all the medical needs through your "Pediatric Medical Home".


We are leading the way in the Air Force because we are committed to providing you fast and convenient access to your pediatric healthcare team. Through effective communication and building of continuous healing relationships you will receive the resources you need to care for your children.
